Getaway

Balancing work and leisure, raising your kids, focusing on the simple things that really matter. For the majority of us the struggle to do so is very real. But in reality, it’s the accumulation of these diverse events that make you who you are.

A Western Flow

Flowing from Wyoming to Colorado, the Green River is a 730-mile winding watershed in the middle of the Western wilderness. White water rapids and ripping winds are not uncommon on the Green, making the watercraft you take one of the most important pieces you pack. Eager to test out BOTE’s inflatables in some harsh conditions, BOTE Creative Director, Rob McAbee, and some of the BOTE team got together to conjure up the ultimate river trip.

Reel Time Florida Sportsman TV Season 4

It’s time to tune in and join host George Gozdz as he takes Reel Time Florida Sportsman on the road. Ride along as the RTFS crew goes from Miami to Amelia Island on the east coast and from Ft. Myers to Crystal River on the west coast as George hooks up with anglers, like you, to film the fourth season of the very popular television show. This season is all about amazing destinations, colorful characters and new techniques.

The premise of the show has always been to connect with anglers from around the state and fish their home waters, making them stars for a day. “It was a dream come true,” said Zach Truong, 16, of Orange City, Florida, when George Gozdz reached out to him as a result of his Instagram post. “I never thought I’d be picked to be on the show. I’ve been watching RTFS since it started online. It’s my favorite fishing show because it’s relevant; they do a lot of the same kind of fishing that I do with my parents.” You can catch Zach in action on episode four.

“Once I was able to forget about the cameras, the day turned into a regular fishing trip,” said Mark Lamacchia, a 28-year-old roofer from Sarasota who will be in episode four. “George was awesome. He was funny and great to be around. There was never a dull moment. We caught snook, jacks, tripletail and sheepshead. It was a great day.”

“To keep our shows improving, we want to bring more to the picture than simply recalling our day’s fishing,” host Gozdz commented. We want to teach you something you didn’t already know with our technique shows, make you want to fish an area with our destination shows and introduce you to an interesting person with our personality shows.

“As I say in each show, post a report or give me a shoutout—I want to fish with you next.”

BOTE Travelink Carry System

BOTE Board innovators have found the missing link in the new Patent Pending Travelink™ Carry System. The Travelink™ system was designed to get you to your paddling spot more easily, comfortably and without ‘dead arm’ syndrome.

Travelink™ – It’s the link you’ve been missing.

BOTE DarkRoom

We were asked to provide a glimpse into the BOTE DarkRoom.

“The BOTE DarkRoom. An area dedicated to complete manipulation and control of our products. Nope. We haven’t opened a photography lab. We’ve simply borrowed the nomenclature for BOTE’s latest endeavor, The DarkRoom. The DarkRoom isn’t simply a space; it’s a project with a purpose. From inception to completion, the DarkRoom will allow for BOTE to have complete control over projects from beginning to end.”

Wild Instinct Outdoors

We are producing a new television series called Wild Instinct Outdoors to air on Discovery’s Destination America network in July 2015. The 13 episode series will provide a groundbreaking new look into the outdoor world and the pursuits of hunting and fishing. The show focuses on the entire experience rather than the end result with locations throughout North America from the westernmost mountain tops to the southernmost swamps and everywhere in-between. We have put together this teaser from our first few shoots. You can follow along in the Wild Instinct Outdoors journey on instagram, facebook and the website.

Behind the Scenes on Lake Okeechobee

We went to Lake Okeechobee to grab some pick up shots for a TV episode that we shot for Wild Instinct Outdoors. Corey managed to shoot some behind the scenes photos in between shooting his shotgun.
